Top Marks For Cambridge Support Service

A residential and respite care home for adults with learning disabilities has been given top marks after a visit by Government inspectors.

The home at Russell Street, Cambridge, recently underwent a routine inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and was found to be performing well in all aspects of the inspection.

The house provides residential care and respite support for up to eight people who were interviewed as part of the inspection process. Inspectors also spoke to staff working at Russell Street.

The CQC report notes that service users were positive and complimentary about the support they received. Inspectors commented that ‘there was laughter and friendly banter between staff and people living in the home.’

CQC looked at all aspects of the work of the home, including measures to ensure service users were kept safe and supported in a way which reflected their individual needs and they were protected from abuse with respect to their human rights. The quality and accessibility of the building, staff training, supervision and management practice and processes were also checked.
